Nicola Beckett on Paths (56 minutes ago)
like green screen acrobats
through city streets
voices swing and sideswipe
and faces throw scowled eyes
towards our down trod step

who only do what trees do
not denying light on purpose

He knew he was boundless, liberal, enraged, , jealous, dizzy,
he thought h...

Your a Kraken, a gorgon, a monster.
You don't bite,
It's not even spite.
You maybe don't know the damage you do.
Screwed over, discriminated against, scrap.
That's what I am.
My life is crap.
I can't prove them wrong,
It's stolen away.
No chance of change.
Never mind - I am mad anyway.
Who gives a toss?
I am really no loss.
No one will even notice,...
